Hans Feurer02.10.2021 - 23.11.2021
The exhibition features more than 40 photographic works by Hans Feurer – among them selected large-sized portraits. They give an insight into the creative body of work of the internationally renowned photographer and illustrate, as an example, the progress of fashion photography. This is Hans Feurer’s second solo exhibition at CAMERA WORK Gallery. Hans Feurer (*1939 in Switzerland) worked as a graphic designer, illustrator, and art director in Great Britain before completing his art studies in the 1960s. During a trip through Africa from 1965 to 1967, he developed a strong passion for photography, which he professionalized step by step. He had his international breakthrough in 1967. In addition, his work was published in leading magazines such as »Vogue«, »Nova«, »Elle«, and »Twen«. Up to the current day, Hans Feurer has continued working in fashion photography and traveling to the most remote countries of the world. His works are represented in prestigious art collections and are displayed in museal exhibitions. Currently, Kunstpalast in Dusseldorf, Germany is presenting the exhibition »CAPTIVATE!« about fashion photography in the 1990s, curated by Claudia Schiffer. For this exhibition the supermodel picked her very own favorite portraits by Hans Feurer.
